Strong Start!

By Bollywood Hungama

Akshay Kumar films have a strong market in U.K. and BHAGAM BHAG reiterates the fact yet again. Priyadarshan’s latest comic caper has fetched an impressive start in the territory, nearing £ 200,000 mark in its first five days.

Meanwhile, BAABUL continues to do exceptional business in U.K. and U.S.A. In U.K., the film has crossed BAGHBAN [£ 748,028] and at the rate it’s faring, it should cross RANG DE BASANTI [£ 825,198] and LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI [£ 823,868] in the next few days. In the U.S., BAABUL is nearing the $ 1 million mark, which is fantastic.
